As strange as this recipe may sound, my curiousity overcame me, and I had to try it. My whole family loves this jelly. It is great put on waffles, or on PBJ sandwiches. Try it! It's great!
I was making fruit jam when I came across this recipe. I just had to try it. It came out wonderful. I am planning to make several batches of this recipe, the candy apple jelly recipe and the banana marmilade recipe to give to friends for christmas with a half gallon of ice cream.
This is a really great recipe. My batch only ended up making 1 1/2 pints on my first try, but I will definately try again.
